This beautifully illustrated, delightfully informative collection of 100 of the world's most significant paintings covers nearly every period, culture, and style. What makes the Book of Kells such an extraordinary example of the illuminated manuscript? Why is D#65533;rer's self-portrait so iconic? How did Turner's Rain, Steam, Speed turn the art world on its head? What's so great about Jasper Johns's Flag? And who was Whistler's mother, anyway? Art history is filled with paintings that shocked, intrigued, enraged, and mystified their audiences--paintings that exemplified the period in which they were created and forever changed the way we think. Here, 100 examples of these icons of art are presented in beautiful, high-quality reproductions. Each spread features comparative illustrations and details as well as an engaging text that explains why that particular painting belongs in the pantheon of world-changing art.

Fascinating read - brief overviews of each painting/art item, short comment on why chosen, lovely images. Good for artists, historians, summer holiday folks.
